MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Captain Michael Clarke blasted a magnificent 105 as Australia outplayed England in all departments to beat the hosts by 88 runs in the second one-day international at Old Trafford on Sunday and go 1-0 up in the series.

Australia had set a challenging target of 316, driven by Clarke’s 155-run partnership with George Bailey (82) against below-par bowling from England, who also struggled to get going with the bat and were bowled out for 227.
